This fake ad listing all the ingredients in Chicken McNuggets is too real

Warning: You might lose your appetite

What would happen if McDonald's were required to be honest -- really honest -- about its processed poultry product, better known as the Chicken McNugget? It would probably look something like this clip from Redacted Tonight.

Ostensibly, this is a "comedy video," but what it comes down to is a goofy "kid" listing all the ingredients in McDonald's chicken nuggets. There are a lot of them, including sodium, sugar and artificial additives -- all of which we probably don't need in our food, and all of which the fast food company underplays while emphasizing the part that's "white meat chicken."
